Homage’s Transportation Assistance Program (TAP)
Millions of Americans face barriers to accessing medical treatment, mental health care, community services, and necessities, such as the supermarket or pharmacies. For the elderly and people with disabilities, affordable and reliable transportation is a significant challenge, particularly in rural communities.
In Snohomish County, WA, Homage is the largest provider of services for older adults and individuals with disabilities, serving over 25,000 individuals annually. At Homage, we recognize the critical need for affordable, convenient transportation services accessible to all.

What is the Transportation Assistance Program (TAP)?
TAP is Homage’s rural transportation program that provides non-emergency service to people age 55 or older, disabled people of any age, or low income people of any age who are outside of the DART (Dial a Ride) service area.
TAP Can Assist With:
Essential transportation services that include; healthcare, employment, congregate meal sites, shopping, schools, senior centers, recreation and more. Access to safe and reliable transportation that makes a tremendous difference for many people, enabling them to continue living independently.
Having the ability to leave the house and engage with others in the community is critical to overall health and well-being. Access to a reliable, affordable, flexible transportation system is essential, particularly in rural communities with limited services.
TAP Drivers are trained to assist those with special needs. Each rider is safely assisted onto the bus, secured by the driver if needed, and safely assisted off the bus at the rider’s destination.
